Un article del 2011 deia que passaria això durant el 2014

Això és tal com ho vaig apuntar:

23 incredible new technologies you’ll see by 2021


A 1 Terabyte SD Memory Card probably seems like an impossibly unnecessary technological investment. Many computers still don?t come with that much memory, much less SD memory cards that fit in your digital camera. Yet thanks to Moore?s Law we can expect that the 1TB SD card will become commonplace in 2014, and increasingly necessary given the much larger swaths of data and information that we?re constantly exchanging every day (thanks to technologies like memristors and our increasing ever-connectedness). The only disruptive factor here could be the rise of cloud-computing, but as data and transfer speeds continue to rise, it?s inevitable that we?ll need a physical place to store our digital stuff.

The first around-the-world flight by a solar-powered plane will be accomplished by now, bringing truly clean energy to air transportation for the first time. Consumer models are still far down the road, but you don?t need to let your imagination wander too far to figure out that this is definitely a game-changer. Consider this: it took humans quite a few milennia to figure out how to fly; and only a fraction of that time to do it with solar power.

The world?s most advanced polar icebreaker is currently being developed as a part of the EU?s scientific development goals and is scheduled to launch in 2014. As global average temperatures continue to climb, an understanding and diligence to the polar regions will be essential to monitoring the rapidly changing climates?and this icebreaker will be up to the task.

$100 personal DNA sequencing is what?s being promised by a company called BioNanomatrix, which the company founder Han Cao has made possible through his invention of the ?nanofluidic chip.? What this means: by being able to cheaply sequence your individual genome, a doctor could biopsy a tumor, sequence the DNA, and use that information to determine a prognosis and prescribe treatment for less than the cost of a modern-day x-ray. And by specifically inspecting the cancer?s DNA, treatment can be applied with far more specific?and effective?accuracy.

He estat buscant per sobre i sembla que anaven prou encaminats, però no del tot.
Les SD Card d’1TB existeixen, però valen uns 700?
El Solar Impulse ha re-programat la volta al món sense combustible fòssil pel març del 2015.
El projecte del trencagel polar va ser suspès.
La seqüenciació de l’ADN és possible, però al web no hi diuen res del preu.

He rebut un mail del passat!

Concretament de l’octubre del 2011, i és un mail meu de fa poc més d’un any dirigit al jo del futur, és a dir, el d’ara.

He agafat per costum crear futurs esdeveniments al meu calendari de Google on hi explico el que es diu que passarà per aquella data. El calendari es diu futurologia i el podeu veure aquí, és public:


I si el voleu posar al vostre propi calendari, afegiu aquesta adreça en format ical:


Així per exemple, el 2061 (si encara visc) rebré un correu del 2013 que m’informarà del que deien que passaria l’any 2060. I segons la BBC diuen que el 2060 s’haurà creat una base humana a Mart.

Trobo que és un exercici força interessant, el saber el que pensaven que passaria la gent de fa 50 anys en la data actual i comprovar el grau d’aproximació que en van fer.

El mail que he rebut del passat és aquest:

23 incredible new technologies you’ll see by 2021


Ultrabooks ? The last two years have been all about the tablet. Laptops, with their ?untouchable? screens, have yet to match any tablet?s featherweight portability and zippy response times. However, by next year, ultraportable notebooks?Ultrabooks?will finally be available for under $1000, bringing a complete computing experience into areas of life which, until now, have only been partially filled by smaller technologies such as tablets and smartphones. They weigh around three pounds, measure less than an inch thick, and the hard drives are flash-based, which means they?ll have no moving parts, delivering zippy-quick startups and load times.

The Mars Science Laboratory ? By August 2012, the next mission to Mars will reach the Martian surface with a new rover named Curiosity focusing on whether Mars could ever have supported life, and whether it might be able to in the future. Curiosity will be more than 5 times larger than the previous Mars rover, and the mission will cost around $2.3 billion ? or just about one and a half New Yankee Stadiums.

The paralyzed will walk. But, perhaps not in the way that you?d imagine. Using a machine-brain interface, researchers are making it possible for otherwise paralyzed humans to control neuroprostheses?essentially mechanical limbs that respond to human thought?allowing them to walk and regain bodily control. The same systems are also being developed for the military, which one can only assume means this project won?t flounder due to a lack of funding.

Què us sembla? No anaven gaire errats fa 1 any. La Curiosity és a Mart, els ultrabooks existeixen a menys de 1000$ i hi ha màquines per caminar, encara que no a l’abast de tothom.

Tingues a mà les incidències a la “carretera de la vergonya”!

Hi ha un grup al Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/144970395596912/) on els usuaris pengen molt sovint les incidències que van trobant conduint per la tan criticada carretera de la vergonya (en minúscules tota ella, no es mereix més). Avisen d’accidents, senglars, obres, controls… i en general de qualsevol incidència que hi hagi.

El grup pertany a la Plataforma Carretera de la Vergonya, el qual va ser prou actiu durant uns mesos com per posar el problema que suposa circular-hi a les portades dels principals diaris gironins.

Com que no m’agrada tenir el Facebook al mòbil, vaig decidir buscar alguna manera de posar aquests avisos al meu mòbil Android. Amb Iphone no en tinc ni idea de com es faria, però suposo que hi ha també alguna manera.

Es veu així:

El que cal fer doncs és baixar-se des del Google Play un programa que ho permet. Es diu “Sparse rss” i és gratis:

Llavors el programa s’ha de configurar dient-li que volem veure els missatges del grup del facebook de la Plataforma Carretera de la Vergonya. Per fer-ho entrem al programa i cliquem al menú “Add feed” (afegeix font)
Al camp URL hi posarem: https://facebook-rss.herokuapp.com/rss/144970395596912
i al camp Title hi podem posar: Avisos carretera de la vergonya

Una vegada afegida la font d’on surten els missatges al programa, ens caldrà afegir l’Eina (widget) a l’escriptori, per tal de veure els avisos a l’escriptori del mòbil.

Per fer-ho deixem apretat el dit al lloc on vulgueu de l’escriptori del mòbil fins que aparegui l’opció: “Afegeix a l’escriptori”. Seleccionem “Estris” i llavors el programa que ens hem baixat “Sparse RSS”.

Aquí podem configurar com veurem els avisos. Seleccionem òbviament la font (feed) que hem creat “Avisos carretera de la vergonya” i llestos.

El programa també permet enviar notificacions. Així cada cop que algú escriu un avís el mòbil t’avisarà.

Aprofito per demanar a tothom qui no hi sigui i que transiti sovint per aquesta carretera que s’afegeixi al grup del Facebook. Trobo que si ens hi posem tots podrem fins i tot circular per aquesta carretera més segurs!
